Woman in lab, Chevron improves STEM instruction and training that could lead to well-paying jobs


we focus on improving instruction in science, technology, engineering and math and on helping provide the career and technical training that can lead to well‑paying jobs

If people and communities are to thrive, education and job training are of critical importance. A workforce armed with the skills needed to succeed in the jobs of tomorrow is important not only to the success of our business, but also to a country’s ability to compete in the global marketplace. We focus on improving instruction in the key subjects of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and on helping provide the career and technical training that can lead directly to well-paying jobs.

Working with our partners, we take a comprehensive approach to investments in education by getting students excited about STEM and encouraging them to pursue STEM courses and, ultimately, STEM careers. We support educational standards and proven curricula that promote project- and problem-based learning. We also support teacher training, provide classroom resources, fund outside-of-school activities, and form partnerships with universities designed to strengthen faculty, curricula and student development. In addition to helping the communities where we operate, these investments help us. Tomorrow’s Chevron engineers are today’s schoolchildren.

In Indonesia, Chevron built and sponsors two polytechnic schools. Riau Caltex Polytechnic was built in 2001, and Politeknik Aceh was built with our partners in the long-term recovery effort following the 2004 tsunami.

In 2004, Chevron, Mississippi State University and leaders in early childhood development and education founded Excel by 5, an early childhood education initiative that helps children be happy, healthy and ready to learn at age 5.

By encouraging best practices in early learning and child development, Excel by 5 benefits the children of Mississippi families today and sets the stage for a bright tomorrow.
